Styled this for Le Forge in Sydney a few months ago, with photographer Brian Gilkes. I just love this image. We shot it at the end of the day, it was raining, we were tired, but I had seen this fantastic wall in the car park on my way in that morning and I was determined to capture one of the Le Forge pieces against it. I picked this piece from the new range at the Le Forge studio and with poppies under my arm I dragged Brian and his divine wife Trish outside in the rain. They both indulged me but I’m quite sure there was eye rolling going on behind me. But once outside, with lots of passionate arm flailing to explain my idea, they were both hooked on it. In the end, it was I who had to drag them away from the shot!

Another fun day at work, thanks to the Le Forge team and Brian & Trish. I will be posting more on Brian’s work soon.

    I just discovered your wonderful blog on all things bright and beautiful. This is a visual treat. I am crazy about this picture and love the composition and elements of this shot. Also, one of my favorite things is old walls that show their wonderful age. In fact I’m planning to do a post on this very subject sometime soon because New Orleans is full of fabulous old walls. I will be adding you to my list of favorite blogging friends and if you have a chance to stop by my blog I hope you will. I’ll be visiting your blog often.
